Seminar Objectives:

The seminar provides the basics of the FM3/FM4 – Cortex®-M3/-M4 based microcontroller family from Cypress with the focus on architecture, hardware configuration, peripheral resources, and programming. Beside clock distribution and the embedded Flash memory, each peripheral resource is introduced and explained. Additionally development tool chains are shown.
By demonstrations and hands-on sessions the handling of FM3/FM4 microcontrollers together with the tools is explained. Hereby also the debugger features, which were introduced before, will be applied actively.
